Elbow - Elbow Living Their Dream

Elbow are living a "dream come true".

The 'Grounds for Divorce' hitmakers have won a string of accolades - including the Mercury Prize and two BRIT Awards - sold thousands of records and performed to sell-out crowds and feel "lucky" to be a prominent part of the UK music scene.

Frontman Guy Garvey said: "I feel so very lucky to be part of British music. I have, with my best friends, realised every childhood dream I've had.

"We've won awards, sold records and we're about to embark on our first arena tour. We've met our heroes, seen the world and been paid for it. Literally a dream come true."

Guy - who is joined in the band by guitarist Mark Potter, keyboardist Craig Potter, bassist Pete Turner and drummer Richard Jupp - also revealed the group's new album, 'Build a Rocket Boys!' is a look back at his own childhood and struggles growing up.

He explained: "I'm still in the gang I joined 20 years ago. Like the characters in our new song' Lippy Kids', all we were doing when we were standing on street corners was finding out who we were and who we wanted to be.

"Lyrically, this is a record about the ups and downs of being young through the eyes of someone who loved and hated it at the same time."
